Twenty years after unleashing Blizzard of Aahhh's upon the world, Greg Stump returns to explore the history of ski films. In his first SKI film in ten years, Stump pursues and captures the culprits behind the evolution of skiing and ski films from freestyle to the extreme movement. Stump uses a semi-autobiographical approach to explore the history from 1920's Germany to the modern athletes whose athletic and ariel prowess awes today's viewers.

Stump begins with by giving us the historical perspective, both of the films and of the personalities that would lead skiing from the burning rubble of the freestyle era into the MTV inspired extreme movement. As the Jet Stream Shifts, Skiers like Plake, Schmidt and Hattrup join Stump in a quest to change the face of skiing, giving it a younger, more exciting feel and leading to the Perfect Snowstorm. With the making and release of the Blizzard of Aahhh's,

Stump and his gang of misfits find themselves at the vanguard of a new age of skiing. Unseen footage and interviews give a unique view into the amazing moment that changed an entire genre of film.

And the evolution has not stopped, as Stump explores the modern ski films and how they have been influenced by everything that came before them. Stump also looks at the cycle of influence as it continues with today's young skiers and the revolution that they may bring to the genre themselves.

"Legend of Aahhh's is beautiful. I love seeing all my ski movie mentors and idols in one fine ski movie bouillabaisse."
